Home-Start Mansfield is a charity who offer a unique service where we recruit and train volunteers to visit families with young children in the family's home.
Our volunteers befriend and offer emotional and practical support to families who may be struggling. Our volunteers are either parents themselves or have significant parenting experience and can empathise with the challenges that parenting can bring. They support the family by visiting them at home on a weekly basis.
Our service can make a real difference to the lives of families and children in a time of need. The reasons a familiy might want our help can vary a great deal. It may be a parent who is struggling with post-natal illness, bereavement or loneliness and needs a friendly ear for a chat over a cuppa. It could be a parent with several small children who has difficulty getting out of the home for doctors appointments or to a playgroup.
Our volunteers also offer practical support for family budgeting or planning healthy family meals or tips on managing childrens behaviour.
In the summer we have a day out which is open to all our families and at Christmas we have a party and a gift from Santa for all our children.
We could not provide these activities and train and support our volunteers without funding.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service so we can help even more families.
Thank you for your kind support and the best of luck!
